-level officers and enlisted that are so important to the leadership of our military and chuck hagel's leadership and commitment will be critical to that task. i have met with chuck hagel privately, i've asked him tough questions about iran and israel. i'm satisfied on those points that he will advise the president in according to with -- in accord with those policies but even more important i am struck by his passion, the intensity of his commitment to our men and women in uniform. his caring about them is indicated in so many ways. spontaneously and strongly in his testimony, as well as his private conversations. he will make sure that sexual assault in the military, the epidemic and scourge of rape and assault against men and women who serve and sacrifice for this country will be stopped, that there will be, in fact, zero tolerance not only in word but in deed. and his viewing, for example, of the documentary "invisible war," his understanding that this kind of misconduct is an outrage never to be even implicitly condoned and to be treated as a criminal offense, the most extreme kind of predat

forward, was not able to get the votes to move forward on a confirmation vote on former senator hagel, they must be very upset if they think cozying up to iran and betraying israel further than this administration already has, if they think that's a good idea, closer to iran, betray israel, yesterday was a bad day and you should be very angry with most of the senate republicans and especially my friend senator ted cruz, because they happen to be concerned about our ally israel and concerned about threats of madmen running the country of iran. so if you look, though, at the speeches that have come out after senator hagel had said all things were made public and then this stuff keeps trickling out, another speech, hey, let's put a consulate in iran while they are trying to destroy us and apparently some people can't remember past 10, 12 years and i think it's important to remember our history. 1979, i was at fort beening, georgia in the united states army and some of us haven't forgotten what was happening. and as we have seen new things arise, as we have seen the horrors of what is goi
